A Grand Island Eagle Scout is honoring those who've served by telling their stories.

Several gathered at the Grand Island Veterans Hospital on Veteran's Day to watch a documentary made by new Eagle Scout Rhett Milner.

Milner interviewed his grandfather last Veterans Day for the film then asked residents of the hospital to talk about their time in the military and how it affected them.

Milner says he hopes he makes an impact on those who see the documentary.

"I really hope this documentary changes their life in just a small little fraction of a way to maybe ask a veteran about their stories and share them," said Milner. "Because each one I interview was really eager to share."

It took Milner about 9 months to work on the project, which can be found YouTube.
